UTX Canada and FSX SE

Recommended Posts

Trying to decide to go to UTX Canada, do the ORBX gig, or go native.


First a little history to understand my quest. I used FSX for years but gave up on it due to constant CTD's. Then I went to P3D until it crashed more than I had patience for. Then I found MS Flight and was content with it's stability and awesome graphics, but after years of that I have run the adventure of HI and AK its course. I have returned to FSX recently with the version for Dovetail sold through Steam. I find I am impressed by it's stability.


I am in New Brunswick on the East coast of Canada. In the past I used UTX Canada. It could only use FSX without the Acceleration pack. If I used Acceleration pack the land class would be all screwed up. I lost my copy of UTX Canada in my last move.


I now want to improve the scenery of my area of the woods form the FSX default. And am apprehensive of spending the $ for an add on that might behave the same again on the FSX SE. Has anyone here tried it?


If it is all buggered I guess I could try ORBX Global, Vector, and OpenLC NA when it comes out. I tried the Icelend demo and was disappointed in the disappearing runway bug. I know the newest Vector patch is suppose to enable an automatic airport elevation fix by some sort of disabling but I don't know if it makes the airport unusable or unlandable or simply what effect it has. I also read that the more accurate road, river, shoreline, airport data stands with UTX but of course ORBX is nicer looking. If that is true I am more inclined to go back to UTX as the accuracy is more important than looks to me.


Thanks for your thoughts.

I have used UTX Canada in my FSX Boxed addition with no problems at, and I have the Acceleration pack as well. I never had any problems with my land class that you experienced. I have not installed it into my FSX-SE. I have UTX in my FSX-Boxed, and use FTX Global in FSX-SE. For me, they are both very stable, and I haven't had any crashes using them. I find that I prefer UTX. I live in the US, and I have noticed the UTX is quite a bit more accurate in landclass placement, and the positioning of lakes and railways than FTX Global is. If I had to stay with one, it would be, without a doubt, UTX. And with the new lighting effects with version 2, I like it much more than FTX.
